Soufflé au Chocolat!

Nutella lover? Soufflé lover? The perfect combo: introducing the heavenly Soufflé de Nutella!

Be sure that a hot and well-risen soufflé, fresh from the oven, will always delight your guests. But in this case, when Nutella shows up, trust me, everybody’s gonna truuuly fall for it!!

Remember: It’s ALL about timing! You have to take them out of the oven just at the right moment. The center should be still molten and gooey, though the texture fluffy and airy. When ready, sprinkle them with a dusting of powdered sugar and of course serve them à la minute!

P.S. Despite its reputation, this dessert is actually quick & easy to make! It always works.
